ehmann up to his old tricks: Stuttgart fine former Arsenal keeper for outburst

30 January 2009 01:29
Stuttgart have fined goalkeeper Jens Lehmann for criticising his team-mates and coach Markus Babbel after a 5-1 loss to Bayern Munich.

Former Arsenal stopper Lehmann has apologized for the criticism that came after Tuesday's loss at home. The size of the fine was not disclosed.

No holding back: Jens Lehmann hit out at his coach and team-mates after Stuttgart suffered a 5-1 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich this week.

'Criticism in principle should not be made publicly and that's why he was fined,' said ex-Liverpool defender Babbel on Thursday. 'He apologized to me and the players. We have accepted the apology and the case is closed.'

The 39-year-old Lehmann questioned the way Stuttgart prepared for the second part of the season, pointing out that Bayern looked much fresher.

Without naming anyone, he also criticized team-mates for being lazy and not working enough during the mid-season break.
